  • SEVEN SYRIANS: War Accounts from Syrian Refugees

    325 views 4 years ago
    Diego Cupolo presents his "Seven Syrians: War Accounts from Syrian Refugees" before a crowd at Café Matina in Montreal, Canada on January of 2014.

    "A voice is missing from the international debate on the Syrian War. Throughout the conflict, world leaders have focused discussions on chemical weapons and radical fundamentalists while the Syrian people, civilians and refugees remain effectively absent from the conversation. Yet, as the war continues without foreseeable end, the simple truth is Syrians are dying and whether through bombs or sarin gas, the largest portion of the casualties are civilian."

  • "Spoilers" by Mark Foss Play all

    Author Mark Foss reads from his latest novel "Spoilers", featuring original postcards with Dr. Locke and Rex Beach.

    At an open-air clinic, the enigmatic twist of Dr. Mahlon Locke sets events into motions that trickle down through time until they become a relentless flood:
    An unrepentant dreamer with one short leg finds solace in beautiful shoes. A celebrated author points to a shelf of useless words and a loaded gun. A sharp-tongued scriptgirl clings to the scent of Easter lilies. Guided by ephemera, a young woman reconnects these spoiled lives in a sensuous bid to save herself.

    Punctuated by unforgiving factoids and vintage postcards, Spoilers confronts the fleeting nature of fame, the human impact of progress, and the consequences of choosing art over love.

    "For now, there is Baldie Fitzgerald. He doesn't know it yet, but he too will be changed."
    Sarah. On a wall in a house in Florida she collects postcards and photos from a hundred years ago. Faces of strangers at the clinic of Dr. Mahlon Locke, miracle worker or quack depending who you ask, stare out at her with the blindness of passing time.
    Yet the faces are not mute. Baldie, the young man with one short leg; Ora, the girl with a wandering eye; Jack the chairboy: all three come alive under Sarah's probing gaze.
    Alternating among many characters' voices, Spoilers is a web of stories about coming of age, escaping the past and holding onto it, finding love and letting go. All come together for Sarah, and for us.

  • 'Maple Vedas' by Gandhar K. Chakravarty Play all

    Author Gandhar Chakravarty reads and discusses his latest collection of poems, "Maple Vedas".

    MAPLE VEDAS --- K. Gandhar Chakravarty
    The latest in a long line of scriptures, MAPLE VEDAS explores the voyages of the Gods of India -- Vishnu, Shiva, Ganesha, Kali -- as they visit the northwestern lands of the globe in the past, the present, and the near future. Peopled with other characters like a prophetic moose, a secretive walrus, and a charming groundhog, the interactions and dialogues of this third millenium testament force you to rethink history, religion, and your place in all of it -- wherever you come from. In Maple Vedas, we discover that the Gods of India continue to roam Canada and the United States -- perhaps standing beside you on a city bus -- but they have come in new incarnations. Will you recognize them?
    Colour with Original Artwork by Tara Chartrand, Chris Dyer, Colleen MacIsaac. 6 x 9 . 78 pages. ISBN 978-1-926716-05-3. $18.88
